The best archive for info on A7V133 is the forums at
a7vtroubleshooting.com . If you use their search engine,
change the default "Max age" from 7 to 1000 days or more.
That will help you search back far enough to find an answer.
The search engine is here:
Here is a sample thread. It suggests failure to detect sufficient
RPMs on the CPU fan header, leads to shutdown. I think the A7V133
is a pre-COPS board, and doesn't have a direct hardware overheat
detection on it, which is a more effective method than looking
for a CPU fan RPM signal. The A7N8X family, for example, has a
eight pin Winbond chip dedicated to detecting CPU diode overheat,
which works independently of BIOS or software. On the older
boards, a CPU can be well overheated, before the BIOS or OS
is informed of a problem. The most dangerous fault type on these
boards is when the CPU heatsink falls off (because a clip broke).
